Heat Advisory for Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Indiana

IL, TN, IN, KT (AP) -- A heat advisory remains in effect until 7:00pm CDT Saturday.
Temperatures will continue their heat up through the 90s each afternoon over the next several afternoons as high pressure aloft builds into and across the nation's midsection.
These temperatures will combine with rather muggy conditions to produce afternoon heat index values from 100 to 105 several days in a row. The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity will create a situation in which heat illnesses are possible. Take extra precautions if you work or spend time outside.
When possible, reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or evening.
Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke.
Wear lightweight and loose fitting clothing when possible and drink plenty of water.
Precautionary/preparedness actions: A heat advisory means that a period of hot temperatures is expected. Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out of the sun and check up on relatives and neighbors. Make sure outside pets have plenty of water.

Controversy Brings Potential Changes To District 186 Board Policy

Updated: Tuesday, July 8 2014, 04:25 PM CDT
Preventing future trouble for District 186. That's why the former interim superintendent is proposing changes to the district's Board Policy.

Former Interim Superintendent Dr. Robert Hill was chosen to stay with the district through June at a cost of $650.

During that time he went through 300 pages of the district's board policy.

Dr. Hill says the current policy was outdated, which left the district open to potential lawsuits.

Board policy deals with everything from hiring practices, to handling parent complaints.

Dr. Hill made reference to changes he made after a controversy earlier this year.

Back in March, a teacher produced workbook changed the meaning of the 2nd Amendment which caused national media attention and even death threats against Dr. Hill.

"The new policy reflects a little clearer procedure to follow in terms of who to take your complaint to, at what level of the system the complaint is heard and so on," said Dr. Hill.

Although there are changes to the way parents complaints are handled, the way teachers make their own workbooks is staying the same.

The final version of the new board policy will be voted on at the next school board meeting on July 21.

This isn't the last time we will hear from Dr. Hill. He is extending his stay with the district to work on updating rules and regulations. He will be doing this on his own time and will not be getting paid.
